Ballet Co.Laboratory, the ballet company based out of St. Paul, introduces the twin cities to a new, collaborative showcase that serves as a platform for emerging dancers and choreographers and the opportunity for audiences to support an evolving art form. Laboratory II serves as a community collaboration featuring the advanced level students of the School of Ballet Co.
Laboratory in new works by six local, emerging choreographers. The choreographic artists, which will include both men and women of different backgrounds and two trainees from the company, will be working with twenty students to end in a fully staged professional performance. While some works will be pulled from the Ballet Co.
Laboratory’s company repertoire, there will be some pieces choreographed specifically for Laboratory II in a diverse collection of styles that the students aren’t regularly exposed to such as modern and contemporary. Audiences will enjoy a collection of music from classic Debussy and Chopin to more modern Christian Loffler, and watching professional and student dancers of all shapes and sizes excelling within the art form.
The project hopes to increase the number of students who enroll in ballet classes, become audience members, and partake in the arts that contribute to our community’s well-being.
